Earlier this year, I was interviewed by Jimi Sayo, a hypnotherapist from London and also the host of the PCOS Summit. I was invited as a guest speaker at the summit, to discuss my experience and struggle with Post Adoption Depression Syndrome but honestly, Jimi and I had such a great informal chat that we landed up talking way more broadly, about adoption in South Africa, Post Adoption Depression Syndrome and what I wish friends and family knew and could have offered me at the time of placement.
For those of you who don’t know, Post Adoption Depression Syndrome is like Post Natal Depression and the prevalence of Post Adoption Depression is even higher among adoptive mothers than PND, it’s believed this is because often the journey to adoption is a painful and traumatic one.
